I purchased three Charlie McCarthy heads on Ebay and finished the two conversion figures you see above. I also got an order for my Norbert character, so I shipped him to his new home last week.
In between all this I restored an old Jerry Mahoney doll. It was originally upgraded by Kevin Detweiler. I really admired the workmanship on his conversion. I even learned a new tip after cracking open the head and seeing his mechanics. I repainted the little fellow, replaced his soft eyebrows with sculpted hard eyebrows and gave him a red curly fleece wig.
What about the fifth project? I repaired cracks in the head of an old Lovik figure (not pictured). So yes, I've been busy and I remain so with six more projects on the work bench.
